John, not trying to run over your toes by posting the answer. Just want to help Charlie and anybody else. Figured after 2 weeks it wasn't a mystery anymore ...and you can't play again till somebody does something.

The clues were great. I figured it was the Florissant Grange a week ago. However, Google Maps put it about 14 miles south of where the school is. The wild goose chase was ok because it took me on some great roads.
225 Miles round trip.

Google Maps put it here.

The tag has moved north. Actually "17 mile" from Denver. Took a pic on both sides of the railroad car.

Been too busy to ride it. Put 230 miles on it today. Feels really good at 85 on the highway

Did you get the title yet?

Very nice Charlie. Nice looking wheels too.
Now the bait is set who's gonna be the early bird to grab this....
Maybe before sunrise a citizen might beat us all.
Tag on

I feel like 60pan's subtley hinting at something, but I can't quite put my finger on it...

Kinda hard to photograph too...

If I'm gonna keep playing these games after midnight, I'm gonna need to buy some warmer socks

Presuming that it's okay that I didn't shoot both sides of the car, I'll go ahead and post the next tag so you don't have to waste your Saturday waiting for me to wake up.

A new Tag!

Out East of my town
There's a gem of a street
At the end of the road
Is where you will meet
This poor little fellow
Who's lost half his head
Will someone go say hello
Before the sun's gone to bed?

[IMG] photo COTagHeadlessWindmill044_zps94ed6e0c.jpg[/IMG]

BTW the most direct route involves some lightly washboarded dirt with no turns. There's a couple long ways around that are all paved though.

Bruced Deano on the windmill. He came pulling up right after I posted the grab.

New Tag
From the train tag Sunrise just grabbed, head N on the main road. This house with no residents is full of TVs and very near where the road ends, in the city.


Here's a pic clue to help ya find this place
